I wonder what the minimum wall thickness is for stainless steel for a ring. Is that 3 mm or can it be less ?

Hope someone have experience with this and help can help me out

Thanks Novastar

Hi,
a small object, like a ring, can have a wall thickness less than 3 mm.
Check this link for further infos...
Stainless steel: under 3 mm walls

What Michael said Smile However, be prepared to beef out the thickness according to Shapeways instructions - some designs can be kept thinner whilst others may need to be thicker.

Yes, I think it's often a good idea to play it on the safe side if you can, and hopefully avoid rejections.
